I searched high and low, and the only thread for these guys was in the pit, and I figure they belong here.

so to start off:



I really want to listen to more than just the couple tracks I already have

what are some good albums?

I'm thinking about getting "Fire In the Kitchen" by Warren Haynes

and "Dose" by Gov't Mule



are these good?

04-10-2008, 05:24 PM
deja voodoo is great. My favorites from that album are 'Bad Man Walking' 'About to Rage' 'Perfect Shelter' 'Slackjaw Jezebel' 'Lola Leave Your Light On' and 'Mr. Man'

All great tracks, i could listen to them for hours,

All of their stuff is good. They do a lot of cover songs too like war pigs, catfish blues, and "she said"

My two favorite songs they do are probably soulshine (which I think was an allman brothers song) and catfish blues.

Oh yeah and gonna send you back to georgia, a cover of a houndog taylor song. It's BA

I don't know how Gov't mule isn't more well known.

BTW, if you're a metallica fan check out the gov't mule song "drivin rain".

Haynes and Hetfield collaberated on vocals.

Gov't Mules is reportedly hetfield's favorite band.

Really? I was unaware of that. Quite interesting...

Sadly, I do not own any albums by Gov't Mule, though I have listened to several of them in full, as well as songs from various albums and live covers. I plan on changing my status as a non-Mule album owner soon, though. :)

I do, however, own several albums (both studio and live) by The Allman Brothers Band that feature the great Warren Haynes, who is undoubtedly among my favorite guitarists. I've also had the pleasure to see him live three times, and each time he has completely awed me. Not only are his abilities with the guitar matched by only a very select few, but his voice is beautiful.

Fixed. :D

(I don't think Matt [BrainDamage] reads the blues forum, but if he did he'd be proud of me right now.)




But anyway, I don't know any Gov't Mule yet, but I think I'm going to download a show of theirs right now to get a taste as I've been meaning to listen to them.

^ Exactly. I love Warren's voice. He's a great guitar player also, but I love his vocals.

The point is, Warren could be either a guitarist or a vocalist (as in only one), and still outshine the majority of others who either play the instrument or sing.

The fact that he does both, and so so well, is mind-blowing.

I finally own a Gov't Mule album. In a very tough decision, I chose Live at the Roseland Ballroom over The Flaming Lips album Transmissions from the Satellite Heart. However, I feel very justified in my decision, because this show is smoking.

I was listening to it in the car on the way home, and the first track is a sixteen minute instrumental entitled "Trane". About halfway through the song there was a brief conversation with my mother:

Mom: "Jeffrey, does this music have any words?"

Me: "Not this track."

Mom: "Oh."

And with that the conversation ended. :haha

I actually missed Gov't Mule the last time they were in town because they were playing at a smaller venue (so I wasn't aware of their show until the night they were playing) and they played on a school night.

I'm going to try to be more aware of when they're coming again so I can catch them then.

I've watched that video several times before.

It's great to see two legendary musicians playing together; Warren Haynes's aggressive style and Trey Anastasio's laid-back style compliment each other fairly well. Without a band backing the two it may seem hard to tell, but there are similarities between these two guitarists and the duo that headlined The Allman Brothers Band from the late eighties through most of the nineties, which included Warren and Dickey Betts, whose style, though not exactly too comparable with that of Trey's, was definitely more tranquil and melodic than Warren's playing (though his playing has begun to merge between an aggressive and melodic style).

Sadly, however, most of the comments for that video argue over who the better guitarist is, rather than focus upon the music.

Heartbreaker that is so true. I love how they feed off each others energy so well and its a cohesive effort. You know you have a great musical connection with someone that you can sit down and just play and you know exactly what the other is thinking. Its with only few people that you ever get that with. For me its with my brother. We were both in beginner stages of guitar (5-6 months) and i had some of my greatest songs come from those jams, and when i play those songs its the most satisfying for me. More than any cover or any other song i wrote with others or by myself.

And ya, i think all youtube comments on youtube should be deleted and only people with valid opinions should be allowed to post.

"this is just. ****ing ridiculous.
how god damn awful." how is that helpful to anyone watching the video, people are ****ing beyond comprehension.

This needs bumped, so here I am.

I think Dose is my favorite studio album, and live with a little help from our friends I enjoyed more than the deepest end, although they're both good. You can find lots of their live stuff on torrent sites (not from the soundboard, but they let people set up their own recording equipment, so it's totally legit bootlegs). I also have a bootleg of warren, dickey, and allen woody playing an acoustic set at the rock and roll hall of fame, which is a good listen.

I love listening to mo' voodoo right now, it's a nice change of pace, a lot more laid back, nice covers from some more obscure artists (at least to me).

I found a live warren haynes solo performance from Live at Harvest Blues Fest, where he did a couple songs from his solo album and abb and mule, along with covering U2's One, Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah, and some other stuff. I actually found a site with some rshare links for this, so pm me if you want the site.

Haven't been able to find his solo album or live at bonnaroo, I guess I'll buy it online.

There seems to be a new album in the works now actually:

http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&file=viewthread&tid=86710

Quote from link:
Immediately following his inauguration performances, Haynes will record the first new studio album in three years by his versatile quartet Gov't Mule. This will be the first record to feature the quartet's new bassist Jorgen Carlsson. Gov't Mule will perform the following dates this winter, and will embark on a world tour in support of its new album (due mid-June) which will encompass the US, Europe, and Canada between June and August of 2009.

I like some of their stuff, I actually saw your gigantic youtube post in the off-topic thread and watched all those vids you picked out for braedon. I've been a fan of kyuss for years, but never really went beyond that in the stoner rock genre.

I ended up getting my hands on some orange goblin and CoC (by some, I mean their discographies) and I'm not a big fan of their early stuff tbh (eye for an eye, technocracy, animosity) but I'm really digging America's volume dealer, blind, and deliverance, which is odd because I'm not metallica fan, but hat's what I compare their music to.

My favorite's actually the live album they put out, which is how I know that I really like a band.

I've found myself really getting back into the mule lately and after listening to that track, I was literally like, "wait a second..." and had to look up who played slide. I still can't picture warren playing with a metal band, I always picture him playing with old guys in jam bands.

How do you go from the dead to the allmans CoC?

I saw them in Arkansas on June 4th, and yes the new bass player is good. He's a little more aggressive than Andy was, which is great because Woody was just an animal. I saw them in Madison the night before they did the Holy Haunted House show in Minnesota. My dad and I dipped behind the building after the show and got to meet Warren. He's a Class "A" guy. We got autographs and shot the **** with him for a few minutes. Matt, Andy, and Danny weren't around though. I'll never forget that night.

Haynes is currently on the road with Gov't Mule, though the band has pushed the release of its new album, "By A Thread," back from its original July 28 release (a new date is pending). The quartet recorded its first studio set since 2006's "High & Mighty" at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studio in Texas, with ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons guesting on the track "Broke Down on the Brazos." It also marks the group's first studio recording with bassist Jorgen Carlsson, who joined the Mule in 2008.

Anyone got a Bootleg of them playing Smokestack Lightning? I had one, but I lost it.

pak1351

Nope, sorry, but I don't have nearly enough bootlegs of these guys, need to get an external hard-drive.

Just got back from their Pittsburgh show, really inspiring. Someone was giving Farmer, the tech, a hard time before the show, he ended up chatting about shrooms and his desire to trip. Two minutes later some dude who was whacked out of his mind just walked up and threw a joint on the stage. Lots of weed, lots of people tripping on more than weed, but it was a good time.

They played King's Highway, one of my 3 favorite songs, and Matt soloed for a good 8-10 minutes. Fearless (Pink Floyd) was a great cover, as was goin' out west (Tom Waits). Had my reservations about the new bass player, but he had some really nice runs, good interaction all around. Incredibly tight. Pretty much a perfect sound mix. Waiting on pics from my friends, we were 9 rows back, right in line with Warren. Tickets said they were going to have a guest, nobody showed up, and they started 45 minutes late, but it was an awesome show, although I really don't like Danny Louis.

Might buy it on mule tracks, it was quite good. Liked it more than the last show I attended. Warren got pissed off because almost missed the upstroke on King's Highway on the 2nd beat of the second measure the first four times, I think he broke the tip of his pick off because he threw it into the crowd mid-song and grabbed a new one. He also used the mic stand as a slide, that was pretty cool and sounded surprisingly good as well.

Set 1: Plex Jam > Bad Little Doggie, Bad Man Walking, About To Rage, Gameface Third > Stone From The Sun > Thelonius Beck, Child Of The Earth, Thorazine Shuffle, Effigy

Set 2: Fearless, Brighter Days, Lazy, World Gone Wild > King's Highway Jam > Drums > King's Highway Jam > King's Highway, 32/20 Blues > I'm A Loser > Soulshine, E: Peter Gunn > Goin' Out West > Peter Gunn

It's not a question of compatibility, it's a question of space. VLC plays flac files, and if there's something that I really want on flac only, I can use that. I just don't have the hard disk space to store flac files.

Gov't Mule
O'Shaughnessy Theatre
St. Paul, MN
10.31.07

The second set and encore was remixed by Warren Haynes and sound man Bruce "Slim" Judd.
The Gov't Mule Halloween Spectacular got underway with a moody Play With Fire and a hot Time To Confess. A Million Miles From Yesterday got the crowd singing along and the Rocking Horse that followed kept'em dancing. After a dark Larger Than Life, Fallen Down beautifully wound it's way into The Other One Jam. Danny, the guitar tech for Grace Potter was dressed as Farmer for Halloween and made the onstage guitar switch with Warren before the set ending Blind Man In The Dark. The second set of the night was a first for the band, crew and fans alike.The band, with the assistance of Audley Freed, played from cover to cover Led Zeppelin's Houses Of The Holy. From the opening track The Song Remains The Same to the album ending The Ocean, Gov't Mule put their signature stamp on this rock'n'roll classic album. With Audley onstage the whole set, the guitars were fat and crunchy, the bass driving, the keys rockin' and the drums thundering. At the end of the Zeppelin set, the crowds roaring cheers were deafening and brought the band and Audley back to deliver an encore worthy of the previous set. Come On Into My Kitchen segued into 32/20 Blues which teased Come On Into My Kitchen to end an unbelievable Halloween night.

My Old Man and I ordered our Wanee tickets a week ago. After Wakarusa last year, we were gonna maybe skip out on the festival scene this year. Once I saw the line-up for Wanee it was easy to change my mind. It's reasonably priced, and the VIP package has some nice benefits. Anyhow, this is gonna be the sixth time now that I've seen Gov't Mule, maybe the seventh as they'll be in Milwaukee this upcoming week. Also, shows number nineteen and twenty for Widespread Panic; and third and fourth for The Allman Brothers. Man, Johnny Winter is gonna be there, Stephen Stills, I didn't think I'd ever see either of those two. It's gonna be solid as hell.

I'm looking forward to seeing Georgia and Florida too, I haven't been through those states before.

Also, Jazz Funeral, Gov't Mule has had some cool guests on this tour, so I'd suggest checking them out this week. :cheers:

Jazz Funeral
02-01-2010, 11:25 PM
I'll be seeing all of those too, TN. I've actually seen all the artists you mentioned there. I saw Trucks' and Tedeschi's Soul Stew Revival at Rothbury in '08, that was great. I've seen Mofro twice now, once in Kansas, and once in Arkansas. Those were both Wakarusa festivals, '07 and '09 respectively. Mofro is such a great band to see live, JJ Grey sings and plays with so much soul. Saw the Black Keys at Rothbury, nice stripped-down ruckus. I also saw The North Mississippi Allstars at Wakarusa twice. A keyboardist sat in with them the one night, and I'm tellin' you man, they were a completely different band that night. And it wasn't just a change of band dynamics, I mean they just sounded like a completely different band. It was killer. I saw them open up for John Hiatt at Summerfest in Milwaukee, and after their set, they were Hiatt's backing band. Aptly so, because they played the same role on the studio album that Hiatt was touring behind at the time.

You sure you can't score a ticket? Who's been playing with Mule? Rob Barraco? Ron Hathaway? Audley Freed? Marc Ford? I saw a picture of Jackie Greene playing at Warren's Christmas Jam, that would be pretty sweet, too. **** it, I'm getting on mule.net right now.

But at the show I was at, it was Audley Freed. The next night in Cincinnati, it was Peter Frampton.

Jazz Funeral
02-02-2010, 02:20 AM
Damn, that must've been nice. Audley Freed can rip it pretty good. Not too familiar with the guy, but I've heard some Cry Of Love that was pretty good. He was with the Black Crowes too when they recorded Live at the Greek with Jimmy Page, that's a good one to have. I read somebody refering to him as a "tone guru". A brain I'd like to pick...

As far as your school goes, that's gotta be damn close to spring break. Either way, there'll be other festivals.

Oh, and visiting mule.net, I wound up downloading the Philadelphia show from 10-31-09. Rolling Stones covers for the first half of the show, all accomponied by Jackie Geene, as well as some of their new tunes, Brighter Days, and Blindman in the Dark. I'm listening to it now and I just heard 'em do Ventilator Blues. Diggin' the raunchy slide...

Edit: Ooh, the Blindman in the Dark in this show is 24 minutes long, and features some hard jazzy shit like from the Deepest End concert with Karl Denson. Only, more jazzy(makes me think of Zappa's Big Swifty), and the sax comes courtesy of a guy named Steve Elson. Never heard of him, but he sounds good.

Went to the Milwaukee show last night, no guests. Just pure, unadulterated Mule in all it's unbridled glory. The only cover they did was "She Said, She Said". They did "Far Away", "Birth of the Mule", "Broke Down on the Brazos", "Left Coast Groovies" (Man, did I love that), "Time to Confess", "Blindman in the Dark", "Brighter Days"...

I'm glad I went, I took two of my buddies along who've never seen them before. They loved it.

Jazz Funeral
02-04-2010, 11:49 PM
Just looked at the setlist for the Nashville show (it's available now on Mule Tracks). I see they covered Ventilator Blues with Audley Freed, that must've been something to see. Does Audley play any slide? I've heard Widespread Panic do "Maggot Brain" a number of times, I'd love to hear Mule cover it too. "The Shape I'm In" would be a nice treat too. As if their own material wasn't cool enough, Warren and the boys always pick some killer songs to cover.

TNfootballfan62
02-04-2010, 11:52 PM
I downloaded it the day it come out. :D

Ventilator Blues and The Shape I'm In were both awesome. Freed didn't play any slide, though. Warren Haynes, whether by himself or with Mule, always does some great covers. He can take a song from a band that I don't particularly like, and make it great.

Actually, it's my dad that has the "Live at Bonnaroo" album. I do, however, have "The Lone EP". There's an acoustic version of the Allman Brothers' "End of the Line" on there that gives me chills.

I've heard that they'll cover "Eminence Front", I'd love to see that. I've seen them do "Can't You See", "Staring at Empty Pages", "Hunger Strike", "Into the Mystic", "Dear Mr. Fantasy" and a number of others that I'm sure I was too drunk to remember...

Back to Mule though, I got Mulennium in the mail yesterday. For those who don't know, they released their New Year's show from 12-31-99. The first set is mostly Gov't Mule material, and then the show opens up into a slew of covers and songs that they had recently recorded with Little Milton (Little Milton takes the stage with them). They are also joined onstage by Audley Freed and eventually a few guys from Blueground Undergrass. It's a kickass album, and if you miss Allen Woody you should check it out.

Ivan Neville on keys
Raymond Weber on drums
Ian McLagan on keys
Ruthie Foster as a vocalist
Ron Holloway on sax

Jazz Funeral
10-25-2010, 10:31 AM
Hmm... Interesting. That's a pretty serious line-up, though I have to admit that I don't know who Raymond Weber or Ruthie Foster are. I'm assuming that Warren is going for more of the R&B/Soul thing, like Tales of Ordinary Madness.

What the hell is he gonna do with two monster keyboardists? Maybe one of 'em will be playing a Hammond?

TNfootballfan62
10-25-2010, 10:46 AM
I've read that this will be a Soul band, so good call, there.

And I'm not sure what the deal with two keyboardists is. Maybe Ivan Neville is the main guy and Ian McLagan will be making a guest appearance or vice versa. You know how Warren Haynes bands are with guests, etc.

I'll be really interested to hear this band. I hope I get a chance to go to the Christmas Jam.

Beautiful state, by the way. Though, most of what I've seen was from the Interstate. The whole stretch from Monteagle to Chattanooga is especially pretty.

OT, did you know that Warren recorded an album with this same Soul Band? I just read an article about this in Relix magazine. It seems they recorded it at Willie's place right after By A Thread with Gordie Johnson still on the production end. They changed a bunch of equipment around so that they were using all vintage stuff; right down to the mixing board and even the tape console that runs at fewer RPM's. They really wanted to capture that old sound. Warren even borrowed some vintage ES-335's and other old Gibson hollowbodies to help make it all the more authentic. I thought that was odd because I think he has a serious collection of guitars as it is.

Anyhow, it's supposed to be released early next year.

Oh, and I found out that Raymond Weber is the drummer for Ivan's Dumpstaphunk.

TNfootballfan62

I'm also absolutely pumped about this album. I knew they were going to release one, but I didn't know it was already done. Wow.

I think I saw that same video. Good old Farmer was showing that old red ES-335 and hitting some of the finer points of Warren's rig, right? I think that was lumped in with some behind the scenes video from the recording of By A Thread IIRC. I got a kick out of all of the "Don't Fuck With Farmer" signs too.

That's the video. Have you noticed his rack of guitars just offstage during Mule shows? I'd love to have just one of those Pauls or 335s. :o

I agree, I do have a Gibson LP, but I'd gladly take another. The one that seems to really leap out of that rack is that 12-string Les Paul of his. Sticks out like a sore thumb.

Yeah, he's the only person I've ever seen use a 12-string Les Paul, so they look a little odd at first.
